Welcome to the happy world of Skeeter, East coast powerpop phenoms.
Weaned on an unbalanced diet of Ramones, Steely Dan, Elvis Costello, Hüsker Dü, 70?s rock, and maybe just a touch of Rick Springfield, Skeeter writes about normal stuff — things that could happen to you on any given day (e.g.: prison, coma, voodoo, O.D.-ing, spaceships, and so on and so forth).
Consisting of founding member Jason Petrisko (guitar/vox), Austin Faxon (drums) and Mike Doktorski (bass), Skeeter’s mission statement, if there were one, might read something like this: Pen uniquely hefty, hummable powerpop songs … built to stand the test-of-time.

SKEETER RELEASE “BULLETS FOR MANATEES” EP
New York City (MAY 1, 2012) — Eight years after the UK release of the full-length “Possibly The Only…” (Boss Tuneage), “Bullets for Manatees” shows Skeeter is ready, willing and able to stake their claim as one of the most sophisticated voices in powerpop.
Shortly after the 2004 release of “Possibly The Only…” garnered praise and airplay, from homegrown podcasts to Q104.3, New York’s biggest rock station, both the band and their former label very nearly imploded, taking with it, any chance for the group to support their release with proper European and US tours. After a protracted, multi-year personnel search, and the forging of a strong independent distribution channel, Skeeter’s renewed confidence is apparent in every meaty chord and succulent hook on their new release.
Available exclusively as a downloadable digital-EP from the official Skeeter website (http://SkeeterMusic.com), “Bullets for Manatees” showcases the complex powerpop stylings which have earned comparisons to indie-rock darlings (Hüsker Dü, Built to Spill, Weston), rockers (Foo Fighters, Alkaline Trio, Doughboys) and wordsmiths (Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson, Graham Parker). Not so much a full-on tome as it is a taste of what’s to come, “Bullets for Manatees” releases ahead of Skeeter’s announcements of upcoming shows and new recordings. So, say hello to your new favorite songs … and say hello to your new favorite band.
